Endeavor Media Parlor build
Well, here we go. I love movies and love home theater. I have always enjoyed how film makers can tell so many stories in so many different ways using incredible techniques and technology. The desire to have my own theater seems to be a symptom of many things, not the least of which is being a techno-geek fond of all things AV with pretty buttons and lights.
I would say I started getting fairly serious about this stuff when I got a used surplus LCD projector and threw a 96" image up on my basement wall in 2005. I was instantly addicted to large format video entertainment. I also helped "ecrabb" with his dedicated theater build, which undoubtedly elevated my affliction of high level AV. I currently have realistic barriers (thank God) that prevent me from going crazy with this home theater stuff... first, limited budget (which most of us face) and limited space which as a result of living in a 1960's split foyer with no practical place for a dedicated home theater. So I've done as much as I could over the years with both of these limits in place.
The build begins last winter, but first lets take a look at what I was up against and the general vision for the space.
Here are dimensions...
and what I was thinking I should do to the room… gut the place, add wood-burning stove, Murphy bed, and a screen wall with credenza.
This thread will be dedicated to documenting my progress on the build until completion. I will follow with a series of photos that will bring us up to date.
